Matzo Balls

Photo by: Joseph De Leo

Abe experimented until he came up with the lightest, fluffiest, most Jewish-motherly matzo balls imaginable.

Yield: Makes 12 to 14

  • 1 tablespoons plus ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup schmaltz
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/3 cup matzo meal


1. Fill a large, wide stockpot three-quarters full of water, add 1 tablespoon of the salt, and bring to a rapid boil.

2. While water is boiling, crack eggs into a large bowl and beat thoroughly. Beat in schmaltz, ¼ teaspoon salt, pepper, and baking powder. Slowly fold in matzo meal, mixing vigorously until completely blended.

3. Wet hands and, folding the mixture in your palms, shape perfect balls about 1 ¼ inches in diameter (they will double in size when cooked). Gently place the matzo balls in the boiling water, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 25 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place 1 or 2 in each bowl of soup. Serve immediately.
